OK, maybe I've overdone it a bit here, LOL. But (just like the JMT) when I do something, I go all the way :).
Here are "a few" shots showing the Trailspace hat & stickers on my 30-day John Muir Trail thru-hike last month. There would have been more (photos) but (1) it rained a lot so the stickers on the water bottles & bear can were hidden under the pack cover, and (2) I lost the Trailspace hat at one of my re-supply points at approx. 90 miles in. Besides, I started to feel like one of those race car drivers with a company name plastered all over their car O^o.
Only 211 miles to go (to the end of the JMT, then another 10 after that). This was at Happy Isles where the JMT begins (for SoBo hikers).
A trail sign near Tuolomne Meadows
The first "real" pass ... Donahue Pass
As the sign indicates :)
Stocked up on food for another 4 day segment... Bearikade Expedition loaned courtesy of speacock.
Dinner on a cold wet day (day 2 of 10 with rain)...
Dinner with a view ... overlooking Evolution Lake, a particularly scenic area!
Muir Hut at Muir Pass!
Packing up for the trail after a night in Upper Vidette Meadow. It was laundry day, too, as shown by the socks hanging out to dry.
Again, as the sign indicates :). The Trailspace sticker is on the bottle at the extreme left of the shot). The trail switchbacks down a nearly vertical face to the south on the other side of that sign, to the 11,000 ft plateau below. I was very glad it was dry that day... actually it was hot in the sun, but I wasn't complaining! :)
Summit of Mt. Whitney (someday when I'm bored I'll use Photoshop to clone out that unwanted person in the photo ... there were a lot of them on that summit and on the trail out from there...)
Perched on the USGS plaque at the actual summit of Mt. Whitney (previous & next photo). Owens Valley & the town of Lone Pine in the distance before that next ridge.
